Provenance

Bookplate of James Whatman (1702-1759) on front pastedown with his signature on first blank leaf. On the next four blank pp. at the front Whatman described the history of the Geneva version in a neat hand, likely on his own wove paper. Whatman produced high-quality white paper in the 1740s that was used by state papers and also used in printed books. He was the first paper maker in Europe to make wove paper.

Note

The second edition of the Geneva version printed in Geneva. The second edition is a smaller book than the 1560 first edition. The Apocrypha was removed from this copy, likely by a zealous Puritan. The Psalter was an integral part of this edition and is lacking from this copy, but four of the five maps are present.

Scarcity

RBH records only three copies at auction since 1910. OCLC shows only six copies in institutions.
